The Europeana Impact Playbook is helping cultural heritage institutions around the world discover and analyse the impact of their activities. We’ve been working with some of them to help develop our work on impact further, and we’ve been talking to others about their experiences with the first phase of the Impact Playbook. Here, we hear from 3 very different projects.
Last week, Harry Verwayen, Executive Director of the Europeana Foundation, appeared at THE ARTS+ festival in Frankfurt to take part in visionary discussions about a new ecosystem for the future of culture as part of an #InnovationSummit.
We discuss cultural heritage and impact with acclaimed professor of Cultural Economics and Deputy Rector for International Relations at IULM University, Milan, Pier Luigi Sacco - a self-proclaimed optimist who vividly illustrates the potential of free expression and unbridled content creation in the digital transformation of society.
Europeana believes making cultural heritage digitally available and accessible is important. But why exactly? What is the value of this? Who benefits from it? What changes does it create? Or in other words: what is the impact of Europeana?
Impact is a hot topic for Europeana this year! It is embedded in every element of our Business Plan, and became the focus of a new Task Force. Our goal, and it is a tough one, is to make it easier for Cultural Heritage Institutions to understand and express the impact of their activities.
